Can’t you build a new settlement, and put all the growth there?

One of the options we are considering is the potential new town, village or villages. A new town or village would require a lot of investment in new roads, schools, shops, and doctors. A new town would take many years to get started, so could only accommodate some of the growth needed in this plan period to 2036. A new town or village would have to be very large to make a noticeable difference. Rather than an alternative to growth in existing places, it is sensible to consider a new town or village as one part of our growth options.
